Despite the fact that I am still in New York on vacation (except for things like on-line payroll and P-card reviewing and approving, which can’t wait), I’m taking a bit a of a break from reading mysteries and eating Christmas goodies to work on several things I have in progress. I’m not going to be able to finish any of them, since I don’t have any books here for checking references, and most of the images I want to use are in the Aperture vault on my computer back in Barrow. However, I can do outlines, and get a fair bit of the text drafted before I get home, at least for some of them.
In order they are: 1) PowerPoint & accompanying paper on Iñupiat and Cold War Science for a conference in Munich, 2) encyclopedia article on Western Thule 1300-1750AD in North & Northwest Alaska (in 7000 words maximum!), 3)PowerPoint on Alaskan archaeological sites and threats to them from climate change as it has been observed to be occurring for a conference in Tromsø, Norway, 4) article I’m working on with Claire Alix and Owen Mason on Ipiutak at Nuvuk, 5) encyclopedia article on Barrow sites (Nuvuk, Birnirk and Utqiagvik), 6) paper on ethnographic data on storage of whaling gear, and 7) a paper on whaling gear recovered from archaeological sites which are known to have had whaling taking place.
These all have places they are to go, and times they need to be there. Nothing concentrates the mind like deadlines, except perhaps the threat of execution…

G’day Anne – just catching up with your blog – been busy with the holidays (like many others) and major flooding here. As always, enjoy your writing, and have come across many things which I follow up on other sites. New Year Greetings! Terry
Hope the flooding hasn’t affected you directly. Sounds like it’s pretty bad. To think when I visited Queensland there was a prolonged drought going on!
